I think we are all a little bit afraid of our own faults. We all have them. But if we were to face up to them we’d have no time to find fault in others, and that’s a very good thing. However, human nature pulls us in the other direction. It’s a lot easier to blame someone else. Look at athletes, public figures, and certainly our politicians, pointing fingers at someone else has become our national pastime. We teach our children the lesson of blame from early childhood. Our children’s role models, idols, and peers reinforce looking for external causes of our failures and faults. You seldom hear a voice advocating looking inward. Yet, if my attitude is directed toward correcting my own faults, and I devote all my effort toward that goal I unlock the secret of success. It’s that simple.
